I was a guest student at Oakland for a year and and am so glad that it is not the school I graduated from. Oakland University is not a student friendly school. I have worked at other universities in the Student Services department and Oakland University's is by far below par. The financial aid department will not help and the registrars office will not help you. Which is a shame, considering that those are the 2 deparments you will be working with the most. Be careful in selecting this as your school, just because it's cheaper on paper does not mean that it will be in the long run. Going to a community college could get you the same education for even less, and maybe be even more credible. The reputation nation wide is non existant (oakland who?) and there is not a lot of networking that happens. It is much more worth it to invest in a school which has a good student services department that can support you during and after college than settle for oakland university.
